There is a new "The Status of Atheists in America" topic
The Status of Atheists in America
Material relevant to that topic should go to that topic, not be in this topic.
Please, no replies to this moderation message.

Please make it easy to tell you apart from the idiots. Source

The topic is evolution and creationism in Europe
All messages should explicitly have something to do with the topic theme as presented in the topic title.
If not, it's off-topic.

Re: The topic is evolution and creationism in Europe
Not an "Evolution is religion" topic, unless you can somehow tie such into the theme of "No evolution/creation debate in Europe".
Adminnemooseus
Added by edit: OK, I now notice that Bluegenes did brush upon the topic theme. I guess, please take it from there.
Edited by Adminnemooseus, : See above.

Short term closure coming soon
Probably in about 15 minutes.
The topic title is "No evolution/creation debate in Europe".
The evidence or lack of evidence for evolution and/or creationism is the same everywhere. The topic theme, despite a somewhat muddled opening message, is the assertion that the debate is happening differently in Europe as compared to the United States.
So, the question is, is the above "bolded" true or false? Why do you see it as being true or false?
If your message does not fairly directly tie into answering these questions, it is off-topic.
Once closed, the topic will probably re-open later tonight or tomorrow.
